Ambassadors Wanted


 

Applications closed for the 2021-2022 academic year. They will re-open in January of 2022.

 

 

Do you have what it takes to be a College of Science Ambassador?

Ambassadors participate in a wide variety of events in the College, including Science Day and Convocation. They aid in the recruitment of strong STEM students by visiting high schools, giving tours of our science buildings, and hosting other recruitment events where they assist and communicate with prospective College of Science students. Aside from events, our Ambassadors help with our social media presence, welcome new students to the U during Orientation, and develop demos to get kids excited about science!

Ambassadors should be well-rounded individuals with a love for the University of Utah and the College of Science! We are looking for students who have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work in a team environment.

NOTE: Set aside about an hour because the application does not save your progress if you exit. Be prepared to provide a resume and references.

 

 

Becoming an Ambassador


Eligibility

  • Must be an enrolled, degree-seeking undergraduate in the College of Science
  • Must be in good academic standing with the University of Utah (3.00 GPA or higher)

  • Develop presentation, communication, and leadership skills

Hours

  • Average weekly hours will fluctuate based on the number of programs in which an Ambassador participates, but will likely be less than 4 hours a week. University Ambassadors are permitted to have other jobs, either on or off campus, and are encouraged to be involved in other campus activities—provided that these jobs and activities do not interfere with various dates, duties and responsibilities of being a College of Science Ambassador.
